AUCTION

Sunday, December 16, 2012 12 p.m. (PST)

16145 Hart Street Van Nuys, CA 91406


Welcome to Part Two of our 20th Anniversary. For the first time in our history, we’ve received so much material that we had to split our milestone auction into two parts, each brimming with some of the best examples of Modern Art & Design that we have ever sold.

Among the many highlights in this sale, I must mention the four works of Surrealist sculpture that all have functional raison d’être, as well as excellent provenance. The two exceptional, unique brooches by Jean Arp and Alexander Calder, each gifts from the artists themselves, were created as miniature sculpture that can be worn. Calder gave his silver brooch as a gift to the recipient on her 40th birthday, and Arp gave his biomorphic brooch as a gift to Josine Janco, daughter of Dada co-founder Marcel Janco. The Isamu Noguchi Chess table and Man Ray’s Lampshade are brilliant examples of how an artist creates the illusion of mass with only a few two-dimensional planes. The Noguchi Chess table, one of only a handful ever made, retains the sculptural tray, original birch finish, and comes with excellent provenance and exhibition history. Together these four works culminate in one of the strongest groupings of Surrealist sculpture that LAMA has ever offered. We are very proud to represent material from one of Los Angeles’ most renowned institutions, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). A special group of 15 lots from LACMA features rare works from the American Arts & Crafts period, many of which were gifts from the late Max Palevsky. These lots are being sold to benefit future museum acquisitions. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a work from an internationally recognized museum whose provenance will always be admired. Also, this sale offers ten works by Robert Rauschenberg. Our cover lot, Lattice, is a rare mixed media work from the artist’s groundbreaking Hoarfrost series. This pristine example from 1975 is the centerpiece in a mini survey of the artist’s work that includes many of his greatest hits created at Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles. There are also classic icons of design that are still accessible to a wide range of buyers, including designs by Hans Wegner, George Nelson, Arne Jacobsen, and Charles & Ray Eames, many of which are still priced about the same or lower than reproductions. In the twenty years since our first auction, the demand for good art and design is stronger than ever. So, whether you have been buying from LAMA since 1992, or you have just discovered us, we hope that the highlights in our sales will become the highlights in your home.

ERNEST TROVA BANNER Amidst the 1962-63 New York City newspaper strike, gallery and museum organizers were unable to announce upcoming exhibitions. As an advertising solution, art dealer Robert Graham asked Pop artists to submit designs for felt banners to be hung outside of his Madison Avenue gallery. The results were overwhelmingly positive, so with the help of framer Barbara Kulicke, Graham organized a banner-making workshop called the Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Company. Multiple artists contributed designs, from Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Tom Wesselmann, to Jim Dine, Helen Frankenthaler, and Robert Indiana. St. Louis’ Ernest Trova (1927-2009), another emerging artist who was steadily gaining traction in the New York art scene, contributed his iconic Falling Man design to the company. In 1963, Trova exhibited his Falling Man paintings for the first time at the Pace Gallery in New York, and throughout the 60s he replicated the dystopian representation of “man at his most inhuman” as sculptures and prints, some of which reside in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Falling Man Banner (1968) packs the flattened silhouettes into a “fallible modern humanity,” a pattern that represents man’s continuous march towards destruction. From 1997-2000, an example of this design was included in the exhibition, “The Great American Pop Store: Multiples of the Sixties,” that traveled to over ten museums, including the Toledo Museum of Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art.

DAVID PARK In September 1960, after a painful bout with cancer, Bay Area Figurative painter David Park (1911-1960) died in his Berkeley, California home. This final summer, however, was marked by an output of remarkable paintings that explored the themes of his career’s work: groups of people, rowboats, musicians, heads, and figures in landscapes. Park’s daughter, Helen Park Bigelow, spent each day with David during these final prolific months, and in 2009 wrote a biography of her father. Park experienced such extreme pain that he was unable to climb the steps to his studio, paint while sitting up, or stand back to gain better angles of his expansive oil paintings. Determined to paint, Park decided to use gouache on paper, a considerably lower impact process that would allow him to produce at least one painting a day while laying down on a chaise lounge recommended by his doctor. Though when Park first tried the chaise, it was too low and flimsy for his fragile body, so Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff, close friends of Park, secured it to a homemade platform, complete with an improvised easel. Totaling over one hundred paintings, the group of works from 1960 is markedly vibrant and uplifting, filled with an array of delicate colors and smiling faces. One of these paintings, Figure Playing Violin (1960), depicts a woman in a blue dress with thick lines of purple outlining her fingers, arms, and face, suggesting intense concentration. The woman seems to be plucked right out of the crowd in one of Park’s last masterpieces from his final summer, a massive work of felt tip markers on a roll of paper. Filled with images of his childhood in Boston, the scroll, now owned by the University of California, Berkeley, stands as a final scrapbook of memories. Previous works by Park lack such direct emotional depth, and according to art historian Paul Mills, “In the presence of the reality of disease, suffering and death, Park’s figures stir into wakefulness and consciousness; they descend into the arena of human feeling and become an expression of Park’s own struggle with mortality.” Bigelow, Helen Park.

LISTEN-TO-ME The furniture of Edward Wormley (1907-1995) breathes with warmth, elegance, and unparalleled craftsmanship. Throughout the mid-century, he collaborated with the furniture manufacturer Dunbar to produce chairs, tables, couches, and cabinets to furnish the modern American home. According to Wormley, “Furniture is needed for practical reasons, and because it must be there, it may as well be as pleasant as possible to look at, and in a less definable psychological way, comforting to the spirit.” This philosophy runs throughout the Listen-to-Me couch (1948), one of his most popular and enduring designs. This chaise lounge exploration established him among modern chaise lounge originators, including Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and Charlotte Perriand. Designed at Wormley’s New York office in the same year Dunbar asked him to be their exclusive designer, his chaise lounge delicately undulates atop a cherry and maple base to effortlessly support a lounging body. This pristine lounge, from 1948, is adorned with its original metallic threaded fabric, a special request sourced by Dunbar. Pieces like these that incorporate the warmth of wood and custom, hand-made production allowed consumers a “comfortable alternative to historic styles and extreme modern design,” helping Dunbar and Wormley to become leaders in luxury mid-century furniture design.

PIERO FORNASETTI At a time when most designers were rejecting ornament, Italian artist, craftsman, and fashion designer Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) embraced it, resulting in over 11,000 creations. Born in Milan where he lived and worked for his entire life, his career began when his silk scarves caught the attention of Gio Ponti and the fashion world. He eventually collaborated with Ponti on various pieces of furniture and interiors. A consummate craftsman with a proclivity toward Surrealism and the styles of Italy’s past, Fornasetti’s designs adorn a variety of home furnishings and materials, including furniture, lighting, screens, glass, fabric, and plates. His pieces present a peculiar juxtaposition of classical design with modern forms, placing Fornasetti the designer in a playful realm all on his own. One such piece is Giardino del 18th Secolo, a screen from circa 1955, the form simple and functional, yet lacquered in a surreal, dream-like repeating pattern of a stately home surrounded by pleasure gardens. The Vecchie Carte garden table (c. 1955) harkens back to the 19th century with a traditional wrought iron base that supports an enameled steel top. As if to defy order and celebrate a collecting craftsman’s frenzied workspace, Fornasetti creates a trompe l’oeil scene of delicately scattered themes and variations that grace so many of his other works: pastoral illustrations, French sheet music, English and Italian poetry, Dutch tobacco advertisements, and a box of butterfly specimens. A rare potpourri of designs, these works showcase a designer with a restless imagination who artfully poked fun at and paid homage to Europe's rich historical past. Mauries, Patrick.

ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG Throughout his half-century of revolutionary art making, Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) thrived on two principals: innovation and collaboration. By the 1960s, he had already experimented with painting, collage, Combines, theatre, and performance art, rigorously pushing genre boundaries to become an internationally renowned artist. Rauschenberg, however, considered lithography to be an outdated medium, famously stating, “The second half of the twentieth century was no time to start writing on rocks.” When he was living with Jasper Johns in New York in 1961, Rauschenberg helped the passionate printmaker Tatyana Grosman haul two enormous limestone slabs to Johns’ fourth-floor studio. In addition to working with Larry Rivers and Helen Frankenthaler, Grosman executed Johns’ Numbers (0-9), and with the help of Johns, she subsequently encouraged Rauschenberg to overcome his initial aversion to lithography. Finally in 1962, Rauschenberg collaborated with Grosman and her Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) studio to devise techniques for transforming his collages and found objects into prints. Working with master printers and other artists including Jim Dine and Jean Tinguely, Rauschenberg created over fifty editions at ULAE, many achieving international awards. Collaborative, experimental, and unprecedented, this was the inception of a lifelong relationship with lithography that began with ULAE, exploded with Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles, continued at Styria Studio in New York, and culminated in Rauschenberg’s own Untitled Press in Captiva, Florida. The innovations Rauschenberg pioneered at ULAE and later developed at Gemini G.E.L. have become industry standards. Treating “the skin of the stone” as a blank canvas for “anything that creates an image,” he challenged himself to assemble massive collages of interwoven images and materials, starting with Booster at Gemini in 1967, at the time the largest print ever produced by hand-lithography. He printed on Plexiglas, clothing, aluminum, clay, copper; nothing was off limits, and his team of printers and engineers were integral participants in the experiments. In 1969, he established Untitled Press in Florida as a sort of lithography retreat for artists looking to collaborate with Rauschenberg and Robert Petersen, an artist and Gemini master printer. Visitors included Cy Twombly, Brice Marden, and David Bradshaw. During this period he began printing on fabric, which led to an ambitious set of paintings called Hoarfrosts, born from experimentation with cheesecloth used to clean the stone; the opaque cheesecloth preserved some of the images from the previous printing. Capable of applying eight hundred pounds of pressure per square inch, Rauschenberg’s giant green press, Grasshopper, could print on just about any material. The resulting collage and solvent transfers on cloth, including Lattice (Hoarfrost), are gossamer-thin fabrics loosely pinned to the wall, designed to move with the passing wind and interact with the environment. A similar example can be found in the permanent collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Rauschenberg eventually brought the idea to Gemini and created more Hoarfrosts using exotic silks and fabrics. Continued on page 70

As often as he filtered traditional techniques to accommodate his artistic perspective, Rauschenberg also reached back into his own childhood memories. His Publicons series explores his relationship with religion, an ongoing spiritual study that began as a teenager when he wanted to become a preacher. Another series created with the help of Gemini, these are his take on the Stations of the Cross (He made seven Publicon editions, exactly half the number of stations as are in the Christian versions.) The word Publicons is a combination of “public” and “icon” because he intended that viewers push, pull, and open the doors to reveal “an enshrined object.” While it deals directly with Rauschenberg’s spirituality, Publicon--Station IV (1978) drolly addresses “the matter of spirituality – or lack of it – in contemporary culture.” Continued on page 73

Like many of his projects, including Hoarfrosts, Publicons, and Bones and Unions, Rauschenberg’s collaborative style was equally intended for the viewer. In 1985, Rauschenberg created eight Sling-Shots, light boxes that house 14-color lithographs printed on Mylar and sailcloth. With Sling-Shots Lit #8 (1985), the audience is encouraged to pull the metal string to rotate the Mylar screens, each rotation producing a new color combination. These endless variations allude to his rotating Plexiglas discs of the 60s. Rauschenberg’s printed work – on any surface or material – incorporates his personal imagery that was often informed by his surroundings, and in his Sling-Shots, he provides the television for the viewer to change screens.

Throughout the 1970s, Rauschenberg embarked on adventures throughout France, the Middle East, and India to make art using the paper from some of the oldest and most respected paper mills in the world. In 1975, the Sarabhai family – admirers of Rauschenberg’s work – invited him to work in their paper mill that was originally founded by Gandhi as an ashram for sacred texts. When he arrived, he was amazed by “the contrast between the conspicuous wealth of the Sarabhai family and the poverty of the several hundred mill workers who worked for them.” Rather than working in the air-conditioned studio, he set up outdoor worktables in close proximity to the mill workers. For the series, Bones and Unions, Rauschenberg observed the workers’ ancient techniques: “These people looked like they were two hundred years old, just squatting for hours and hours – all these beautiful people working in the dreadful heat.” For Box Cars (1975), Rauschenberg and his crew poured white paper pulp mixed with Egyptian cotton on top of lattices of patterned fabric and bamboo strips. The resulting works, according to Rauschenberg, resembled kites. For Quorum (1975) from the same series, he wanted to use the mixture of mud and cow manure the families used to build their houses. This proved to be difficult since the mud washed away during the rainy season. With the help of the family, the workers, and the Gemini staff, he concocted two suitable, long-lasting mixtures. Comprised of paper pulp, fenugreek powder, ground tamarind seed, chalk powder, gum powder, and copper sulfate, Quorum is another collaborative effort that “present[s] contrasts as keen as those between the Sarabhais and their workers.” Kotz, Mary Lynn.

STICKLEY & ELLIS In a 1901 issue of his Craftsman magazine, Gustav Stickley (1858-1942) outlined the design principles that guided him in producing his pioneering Craftsman furniture: “Do away with all needless ornamentation, returning to plain principles of construction and applying them to the making of simple, strong, comfortable furniture.” This was published just three years after his trip to England and Europe, where he finally experienced firsthand the designs of English Arts and Crafts furniture and European Art Nouveau. Stickley had already been producing well-crafted, albeit unremarkable furniture for two decades, but it wasn’t until 1898 that he began the experiments that would lead to his distinctive Craftsman style. His early chairs and tables – results of these experiments – gained immediate praise in trade publications throughout the country, including editorials and advertisements in House Beautiful. Based in Syracuse, New York, Stickley’s factory and offices became the vanguard of the American Craftsman movement, which demonstrated honest construction, respect for materials, and a guild union similar to those of medieval workshops. By 1903, Stickley had established an influential publication by which he shared his philosophy of “mutual cooperation as a way of life and simplicity as a goal of that style,” and he was continually achieving this intention with his Craftsman furniture guild. The brief but extremely influential tenure of architect Harvey Ellis (1852-1904), however, forever altered the designs of Stickley. Roaming from city to city, contributing designs to multiple firms, Ellis never achieved prominence as an architect. Some historians refer to him as a “paper architect,” one whose designs were never constructed, though it is likely that based on his skillful drawings and admiration from colleagues, some of his designs were probably built. Ellis arrived at the Syracuse workshop when Stickley was just finishing up the renovations to his fire-damaged house, considered to be the first Craftsman structure. Most likely hired as an architect to work with Stickley, who was becoming increasingly interested in translating his Craftsman aesthetic to architecture, in seven months Ellis designed houses, wall decorations, illustrations for The Craftsman, and furniture. According to Stickley historian, Mary Ann Smith, “Ellis’ real contribution, aside from his designs for Stickley, was to be the inspiration he provided at a critical point in Stickley’s development.” While almost every issue of The Craftsman during Ellis’ employment featured illustrations and an Ellis blueprint, none of his buildings were constructed. The same cannot be said for his furniture, which continued to influence Stickley after Ellis’ untimely death. His chairs and cabinets are marked by lightness previously unseen in Stickley pieces. The slats are thinner, the top and seat rails have curves, and metal inlays prominently adorned the center of the backrest. Stickley never used unnecessary ornamentation, but he most likely approved of the inlays – as seen in the side chair and rare inlaid armchair from 1903 – because of his appreciation of medieval imagery, which in the case of Ellis furniture, “emphasized the structure of the designs.” Ellis’ double-door bookcase (1903) evokes a distinctly architectural presence with overhanging tops and an arching skirt, likely inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh from the Glasgow School. When Stickley’s post-Ellis designs are compared to his pre-Ellis counterparts, it is clear that even after the architect’s death, Stickley employed curvature and lightness in many of his pieces. Harvey Ellis was the catalyst for a progressive change toward imaginative design possibilities that endured for the remainder of Gustav Stickley’s career. Smith, Mary Ann.

ELIZABETH EATON BURTON The following two lots were commissioned in 1909 by noted patron of the arts Mrs. Anita Baldwin McClaughry, the daughter of entrepreneur and race horse owner Elias Jackson “Lucky” Baldwin. These two works adorned the interior of her palatial residence “Anoakia,” set within 16 acres in the foothills of Santa Anita Canyon, Los Angeles, California. Seminal architect Arthur B. Benton designed the house, with progressive interior schemes devised by some of the leading American artists and designers of the day, including Maynard Dixon, Ernest Batchelder, and Louis Comfort Tiffany. Elizabeth Eaton Burton is widely recognized as a leading figure in the development of California’s craft tradition, a movement that continued to flourish throughout the twentieth century. Due to the labor-intensive nature of Burton’s studio work and the relatively short period of time that she was active - from the opening of her studio in 1897 to her departure for Europe in 1920 - very few examples were ever produced. Her distinctive style, which featured tooled leather, seashells, and hand-wrought copper worked into organic and flowing forms, was informed partly by her upbringing in metropolitan Paris, which she left at the age of 17, and partly in response to the un-spoilt natural beauty of her home in rural Santa Barbara. The table lamp carries distinct echoes of the leading French fin-de-siècle exponent of the Art Nouveau style, Emile Gallé, with its copper frame, hand-hammered into the form of flowing foliage. The use of abalone for the shades and for the inlay to the recesses of the tooled leather picture frame clearly demonstrates the inspiration that she found within the natural environment where she gathered the seashells during excursions to the beach. An example of Burton’s abalone shell lamp design is currently included in the Gene Autry Museum’s exhibition, “California's Designing Women, 1896-1986.” Beresford, Hattie. The Way it Was: My Santa Barbara Scrapbook: 1886-1910. Santa Barbara: Santa Barbara Historical Museum, 2011. Print.

FLORENCE KNOLL - CUSTOM SOFA Through her “total design” approach, American furniture designer and architect Florence Knoll (b. 1917) produced some of the most iconic furniture designs and interiors of the 20th century. After the sudden death of her husband and founder of Knoll Associates, Hans Knoll, she married Harry Hood Bassett, chairman of the Southeast Bank. Retired since the mid-60s, in 1982 Knoll was asked to design the interior of Southeast’s new building. Completed in 1983, the Southeast Bank Building in Miami, Florida was outfitted with custom furniture from Florence Knoll as well as an extensive collection of modern art, including works by Sol LeWitt, Alexander Calder, and Ellsworth Kelly. A plinth base variation of her classic models, this couch comes from one of the last major interior design commissions of her career. In 2008, the building reopened as the Knoll Miami showroom, redesigned according to Knoll’s original “reductive aesthetic,” incorporating “light, open spaces furnished with elegant woven fabrics, furniture grouped for informal conversation, and brightly colored wall panels.” “Knoll Miami Showroom.” Knoll.com. Knoll Associates, 3 Sept. 2008. Web. 30 Oct. 2012.

GRETA MAGNUSSON GROSSMAN Swedish designer and architect Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999) achieved success on two continents, and remains one of the most influential female designers of the 20th century. She began her career in Sweden, blossomed in Los Angeles, and left her mark on an international scale. After a yearlong woodworking apprentice at a furniture workshop in her hometown of Helsingborg, Sweden, Grossman moved to Stockholm to enroll as a furniture design major at Konstfack, Stockholm’s university for artists, designers, and craftsmen. There she was awarded a travel grant to Europe where she encountered the architecture of Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, as well as machine-made furniture. Upon her return to Sweden, she married the English bandleader Billy Grossman, who encouraged her to start her own furniture business. With the help of classmate Erik Ullrich, Grossman opened Studio, a store and workshop that became a meeting place for Stockholm’s young artists. The city’s newspapers loved Grossman due to her second-place award in the “combination furniture” category in a competition sponsored by the Stockholm Craft Association – the first time a woman earned this distinction. Throughout the 1930s, Grossman produced custom furniture for clients in France, Poland, Panama, and Finland, as well as pieces for Swedish elites, including Ingrid Bergman. Her gracefully simple and practical pieces earned her praise from critics, and in 1938, Grossman turned heads with one of her greatest achievements, a one-woman show at Stockholm’s Galerie Moderne. Greta and Billy had always planned on moving to New York, but a harrowing journey across Russia and Japan during the outbreak of World War II dropped the couple in San Francisco, and then eventually in Los Angeles. The American response to Swedish modern design was overwhelmingly positive, and once Grossman established her shop on North Rodeo drive in Beverly Hills, the Los Angeles press featured her in a flurry of articles. The space was expensive and the country was at war, so Grossman was forced to establish herself at a more modest location on North Highland in Hollywood. Once again Grossman’s space became a hub for the city’s urban planners, designers, and architects, including Richard Neutra. A newspaper article at the time announced that Grossman’s greatest ambition was “to work out designs for simple, inexpensive but esthetically high-class furniture for lower income homes.” She began designing furniture for the Los Angeles based manufacturer, Barker Brothers. So positive was the public’s reception that Barker Brothers transformed their fifth floor into a Modern Shop, complete with furnishings by Grossman and Finnish designer Alvar Aalto. The first of many collaborations with furniture and lighting manufacturers, the opening of the Modern Shop brought over 6,000 spectators, and solidified Grossman as one of the exclusive interior designers in Los Angeles. She went on to design dozens of homes throughout the second half of the century, filling mid-century modern homes with custom furniture as well as her most iconic designs. In the late 1940s and 50s, Grossman conceived a variety of designs for the lighting manufacturer Ralph O. Smith and the furniture manufacturer Glenn of California. She was keenly aware of the American design aesthetic that was becoming popular, and she blended it with the understated prominence of Scandinavian design to create distinctly Southern Californian furniture. She explored new materials, introduced a playful nature to her pieces, and responded to the changing lifestyle of the modern California household. An extremely rare piece, the bookshelf (designed c. 1950) incorporates characteristic Grossman features: black laminate contrasted with natural walnut, atomic balls for feet, and form-follows-function adjustable shelves. Light and elegant, her Tripod floor lamp (designed 1947-48) was designed to easily move from room to room for the open floor plan home. Another exceedingly rare piece, reminiscent of an ironing board, the rare occasional table (designed 1952) achieves a serene symmetry, both in the wood grain and plated stainless steel base. The Tripod floor lamp, the occasional table, and the bookshelf are on display at the Pasadena Museum for California Artists’ exhibition, “Greta Magnusson Grossman: A Car and Some Shorts,” as well as the Gene Autry Museum’s exhibition, “California's Designing Women, 1896-1986.” Snyderman, Evan, and Karin Åberg Wærn.

Boris Jean Lacroix (1902-84) was a French architect and designer who is particularly known for his lighting designs. This modular tea set design is rare, with only one other example known to exist. The other example features ebony handles as opposed to painted wood. It is likely that the tea set was made to order and never went into production.The design was first presented at the 22nd Salon des Artistes Décorateurs, Paris, 1932.

He moved to the city in 1929 in order to establish a metal furniture business shortly after completing work on the Biltmore Hotel, Arizona. The chair's form anticipates his later seminal designs in aluminum; however, during his early years in Los Angeles he was engaged in experimentation with metals and manufacturing processes and only carried out custom designs.

K.E.M. WEBER SOMER COMMISSION During the 1920s, German designer K.E.M. Weber (1889-1963) introduced a new era of modernism in Los Angeles. Working out of Silver Tree, his studio in the downtown branch of Barker Brothers, the largest furniture manufacturer in America at the time, Weber was given creative license to design and furnish the new Modes and Manners section of the store. It was his vision to replace period revivals with fresh, modern design, and he believed that Southern California was the perfect market to begin his venture. Barker Brothers’ departure from the banal reproductions that most manufacturers churned out was an immediate success, thanks to Weber’s unceasing devotion to modernism in both his furniture and the Modes and Manners aesthetic. It was like nothing consumers had seen before, complete with “jagged shapes, startling colors, and frenzied patterns,” as well as designs from other leading modernists such as Paul T. Frankl. After a few successful years and a Weber-designed Barker Brothers branch in Hollywood, in 1927 he decided to open his own design studio in Los Angeles while remaining as a consultant to the company. Weber’s independence led to the development of his streamlined designs, in addition to unconventional pieces from commissions throughout California. One of these commissions was for the Somer & Kaufmann shoe store in San Francisco. They were clearly attracted to Weber’s unusual modern designs, yet they wanted to give their clients a sense of luxury while trying on shoes. For this reason, Weber used Macassar ebony, a sumptuous wood common among French furniture designers such as Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann. Having researched contemporary furniture on a voyage to Spain and Paris during his time at Barker Brothers, he was keenly aware of the leading European sensibilities. The resulting chair combines the materials of Art Deco with a distinctly modern form. Sharp lines, minimalist stature, and an angled black leather cushion churn like a locomotive toward the innovative designs that would later earn him international success.

SURREALIST SCULPTURE Primarily recognized for their innovations in Surrealist sculpture, Jean Arp (1886-1966) and Alexander Calder (1898-1976) employed some of the same techniques used to create their large-scale works to produce stunning pieces of biomorphic jewelry. More than just a departure from abstract paintings and mobiles, jewelry, for Arp and Calder, was regarded as fine art, a diminutive exploration of sculptural forms. Calder even preferred to exhibit his jewelry alongside his sculptures, suggesting a “non-hierarchical approach much in keeping with the way Bauhaus teachers would instruct compositional principles that were as easily applied to painting as to tapestry.” In his brooch from 1957, a single piece of silver is bent and twisted into his characteristic spirals, and the surface – undulating hills and valleys of texture – bears the same hammer strikes of a large sculpture. It assumes new life and movement the moment it is mounted on the wearer. Likewise, Jean Arp’s brooch (circa 1945) began as a flat piece of metal. He cut holes and shaped the edges, elevating the material to a three-dimensional phantasm poised for spontaneous motion. Arp gave this piece as a gift to Josine Janco, daughter of artist and Dada co-founder Marcel Janco. Surrealists conjured life out of everyday objects, and Man Ray (1890-1976) believed that “the idea was always more important than the actual work.” Arising from a mishap in 1920, Man Ray demonstrated this belief with an ordinary piece of metal. On the night before his exhibition was set to open, a janitor accidentally threw away Man Ray’s first version of Lampshade, a spiraled piece of paper hanging from an armature. He was distraught, but upon the suggestion of Katherine Dreier, artist and art patron who co-founded the modern art venue Société Anonyme with Duchamp and Man Ray, he reconstructed Lampshade out of painted metal. Once flat and inert, this example from 1964 becomes a Dada readymade that produces a movement all its own. Baldwin, Neil. Man Ray: American Artist. New York: Man Ray Trust, 1988. Print.

Both sculptural and utilitarian, the Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) Chess table (designed 1944-48) was a chance for Noguchi to marry his artistic vision with his desire to produce useable vessels. He designed the initial prototype shortly after leaving the Nisei Japanese internment camp in Arizona. In 1944, Noguchi was one of 32 artists (the number symbolic of the 32 pieces on a chess board), including Alexander Calder, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, and Max Ernst, invited to exhibit chess-inspired artwork for the show “The Imagery of Chess,” hosted by the Julien Levy Gallery in New York. A Newsweek critic described the table as “the most beautiful piece in the show.” George Nelson immediately bought Noguchi's hit piece, and for a brief period beginning in 1947 had it manufactured in limited quantities at Herman Miller. Three amorphous wooden shapes and a curvaceous aluminum compartment assemble as a three-dimensional biomorphic structure. Just as Arp and Calder avoided semi-precious stones and other materials typically used in jewelry, Noguchi preferred veneered plywood, aluminum, and acrylic plastic to keep the table affordable. Through these methods, these artists achieved the transformative power of Surrealism by manifesting an idea and realizing the object’s potential “to entrap” the user in “an art performance, even to become bewitched.” Johnson, Paul, and Martin Eidelberg.

PHILIPPE STARCK

Driade, designed 1991 Polished aluminum, glass, fabric upholstery 72.5” x 102” x 82”

French designer Philippe Starck (b. 1949) has explored just about every area of design imaginable, including hotels, restaurants, children’s clothing, motorcycles, food packaging, and furniture. He is guided by the principle that an object needs to be “good” before it can be beautiful. A sort of supplement to the Eames philosophy of democratic design, Starck strives to “increase the quality objects at lower prices so that more people can enjoy the best.” Through this philosophy, the willingness to venture into any design field, and his dedication to environmental sustainability, Starck has become one of the most sought-after contemporary designers. Some of his most popular works include the Louis Ghost chair, the Bubble Club sofa and armchair, and his designs for the Royalton Hotel in New York City. In 1988, Starck was asked to completely redesign the Gilded Age hotel – originally constructed in 1898 – to cater to a hip, cosmopolitan clientele. Outfitted with Starck furniture, a sleek lounge, and surreal, suggestive imagery, the resulting redesign marked the inception of a new era in boutique hotels. This bed, manufactured by Driade, features tapered steel legs that adorned most of the hotel’s furniture. At once inviting and mysterious, the bed’s lighting and glass fixtures recreate the dramatic experience of staying at the exclusive Royalton Hotel.

Conditions of Sale/Notice to Buyers The following are our “Conditions of Sale” for the items listed in this catalogue to be sold by Modern Auctions, Inc. (L.A. Modern Auctions or “LAMA”). We are acting as an agent on behalf of our consignors.

PAYMENT All sales are final. All sold lots are to be paid for on the day of the sale. We accept cash, bank wire transfers, checks, and Mastercard and Visa (PLEASE NOTE: Credit card payments are accepted only when presented in person and will not be accepted over the phone, fax, or e-mail). All payments made by personal checks will be subject to clearance before purchases can be collected. Buyers who have not purchased from Modern Auctions, Inc. (Los Angeles Modern Auctions) previously are asked to provide a method of payment and/or letter of reference from a bank or creditor prior to the auction. Bank wire information is available upon request, please phone (323) 904-1950. If payment is not received by December 24th, collection and storage fees will begin incurring immediately.

BUYER’S PREMIUM A buyer’s premium of 25% will be added to the hammer price on all property sold if bids are placed directly with Modern Auctions, Inc. This buyer’s premium can be discounted to 22.5% if payment by cash, check, or bank wire is received by December 24th. The buyer’s premium will not be discounted for internet bidding (27.5%) or payment by credit card or if full payment is not received by December 24th, 2012. (PLEASE NOTE: Credit card payments are accepted only when presented in person and will not be accepted over the phone, fax, or e-mail).

CALIFORNIA SALES TAX Sales tax of 8.75% will be collected on all purchases removed from our premises or delivered within the state of California. Those holding a valid California State Resale License must register before each sale and present their valid resale number. No purchases will be released until all sales tax requirements are satisfied.

ESTIMATES & RESERVES The estimates printed after each lot should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as a prediction of final selling prices. Many of the lots offered for sale carry a reserve and are confidential. The reserve is a minimum price at which the seller has agreed to let the auctioneer sell the property.

Absentee/Phone bids are on a first-come, first-served basis; thus, we encourage you to submit your form ASAP. If identical absentee bids are submitted, the earliest received will take precedence. The number of phone lines available are limited so please submit your phone requests early. On all absentee/phone bid forms, please leave a valid credit card number with expiration date; a deposit of 25% may be required for all absentee and phone bids. Please note that we only accept credit card payments in person. For those absentee/phone bidders who can not come in personally to pay, we will only accept either a certified check or wire transfer as a method of payment (see “Payment” notice). The party responsible for submitting the absentee or phone bid is solely responsible for the payment in full of the total invoice. We will not make any changes to an invoice. Should a dispute arise after the sale, our sale records are conclusive. We are not responsible for failure to execute a bid and have the right to reject any bid. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. Should an item be withdrawn, the auctioneer will make an announcement at the time the lot would have been put up for sale. In addition, the auctioneer may add lots not previously listed in the catalogue or addendum. If the buyer does not comply with all of the notices to buyers, Modern Auctions, Inc., reserves the right to cancel the sale, hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price and buyer’s premium, retain any deposit, and resell the property privately or at auction without further notice. In the latter, the defaulting buyer will be held responsible for all incurred expenses, such as warehouse and transportation costs, commissions, incidentals, and shall be liable for payment of any deficiency in the purchase price. This is strictly enforced. We reserve the right to assess a late charge of 1.5% of the total purchase price per month if payment is not made in accordance with any of these conditions of sale.

GUARANTEE The authenticity of every item offered for sale is guaranteed. Modern Auctions, Inc. warrants only the authorship of an item (as printed in BLUE type) and does not guarantee the condition, age, or any identifying characteristic used by Modern Auctions, Inc., in any descriptions such as color, method of construction, and type of materials. Any lot using the terms “attributed,” “attribution,” “in the style of,” “in the manner of,” or “after” does not qualify for our guarantee. In addition, the buyer assumes responsibility of reading all addendums and posted corrections to the catalogue prior to bidding.

CONDITION EVERYTHING IS SOLD IN “AS-IS” CONDITION. No statement regarding condition of any item, whether it is made orally at the auction or at any other time or in writing in this catalogue shall be deemed to be a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to inspect all goods prior to the sale. We strongly encourage all bidders to request a condition report on any item before bidding. All electrical items are sold for decorative value only and should be assumed not to be working. All measurements are approximate. Photographs of any lots not illustrated can be found on our website LAMODERN.com.

COLLECTION AND STORAGE ALL LOTS MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE AUCTION SHOWROOM BY 12:00 PM ON DECEMBER 21st. Please note: Our offices will be closed from December 22nd through January 1st. Purchases not removed by January 6th will be assessed a daily storage fee of $15 per day per lot. Items in storage are not insured by Modern Auctions, Inc. Unless other arrangements are made and confirmed in writing; the buyer assumes sole responsibility for shipping, packing, insurance, and storage concerns. A list of shippers can be provided upon request.

BIDDING We encourage you to attend the sale in-person. However, if you can not attend in person we offer an “absentee” or phone bidding service. For this service fill out and submit an “Absentee/Phone bid” form. To obtain this form please call (323) 904-1950 or go to our website. We will not execute absentee or phone bid orders unless a signed and completed bid form has been received. All Absentee/Phone bid forms must be received by Saturday, December 15th by 5:00 p.m. (PST) via fax to (323) 904-1954. We encourage you to call after faxing to confirm we have received your bid. We kindly ask that you do not call on the day of the sale to submit bids or to check if your bids were successful. All successful absentee bids should be notified by phone by December 18th. In addition, the auction prices realized will be posted the day after the sale on our website. Do not rely on any auction results (prices realized) unless published on www.lamodern.com or as provided directly by Modern Auctions, Inc.

RESCISSION Should the authenticity of an item be disputed after a sale, the buyer has 90 days from the date of the auction to provide written documentation or conclusive opinion of a mutually agreed upon independent expert, retained at the buyers sole expense, that the item in question is not as stated in the catalogue. In the event of an error, Modern Auctions, Inc. will rescind the purchase contract. Modern Auctions, Inc. will reimburse the buyer for no more than the hammer price plus the buyer’s premium and only after the item is returned to the original point of sale in the condition in which it was sold. Taxes, packing, shipping, and storage costs will not be reimbursed. Modern Auctions, Inc. is not liable for any costs, such as expert's and attorney’s fees. If the item is authentic, as stated in the Modern Auctions, Inc. catalogue, then the purchaser shall bear Modern Auctions, Inc.’s expenses incurred in defense of the allegation, such as attorney’s fees and other costs. The limited right of rescission is only available to the original purchaser from Modern Auctions, Inc. Once the item is resold, then all rights and liabilities of Modern Auctions, Inc. regarding authenticity end. THE PURCHASER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST MODERN AUCTIONS, INC. FOR ANY REASON IS THE LIMITED RIGHT OF RESCISSION DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. The purchaser shall not be entitled to damages, compensatory, incidental, consequential, nominal or punitive, nor any expenses incurred during the proceedings, such as expert's fees, attorney’s fees, and other costs.
